Kate Upton makes Sports Illustrated swimsuit history and looks sexy doing it!

New Your — She's once, twice, three times a Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover lady.

Kate Upton once again graces the cover of the annual issue, becoming only the fourth woman to ever do it three times.

And this year, she makes the splash with three different covers.

See the sexy covers here:

One of the few women to ever do the cover three times is Christie Brinkley, who is also featured in this year's edition with her two daughters. Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum also did it three times.

@christiebrinkley is back in a bikini for #SISwim 2017 (and she's brought two very special guests!).
